(LITTLE YORK) - A young boy was injured Sunday when he was struck by an All-Terrain Vehicle.

Indiana Conservation officers and the Washington County Sheriff's Department were called to the accident just north of Little York.

Police say 76-year-old Clifford Webster, of Salem, was cresting a hill when the vehicle struck a 10-year-old boy. The boy was on a dirt-bike when the accident occurred.
